    The following crotons have simular leaf shapes but are distinctive in color.
    These are awaiting to get planted in Mooseland in the Spring. :)

    This one is named Madame Butterfly. :cool:

    This one is reportedly a sport from Madame Butterfly. :rolleyes:


    Hence the name, The Moth :cool:

    Anyone else got these going in their garden?
    I would love to see your photos! :)

    ...and a few more Madam Butterfly (1,2,4) and a Red Quill (Glock version); Moth is slowly defoliating after the cold.
